We wanted to make sure you were up to date with everything PLAN is doing in Nevada, so we will be producing a newsletter called The PLANista!
With so much going on between Reno, Las Vegas, Carson City, Elko and even Washington DC, we created this newsletter so you can keep up with what we’ve been up to.
In November we attended the Clean Power Plan workshop in Carson City to ensure that the process makes Nevada the leader in a clean energy future. We can’t allow dirty industries to fight to ensue we do the bare minimum. The Clean Power Plan is our opportunity to building an economy that puts people and planet first.
Also in November, supporters in Reno hosted a fundraiser in honor of our 21st birthday. We met a brand new citizen from France who was anxious to register to vote. Click here to register to vote online, it only takes a few minutes.
Did you know? More than 8 million people are eligible to become US citizens, and if they file before April, they could possible vote in the 2016 election? That’s why we’ve joined with our partners to host free immigration workshops where Nevadans with green cards can get free legal help to finish out the process and become a citizen. Our next citizenship workshop is Saturday January 30th. Click here to RSVP to attend or help us make it a success by volunteering. No legal experience is needed.
PLANistas traveled to Chicago for the National People’s Action organizer conference where we talked about what we’ve worked on in 2015 and how we’ll move the Long Term Agenda towards a People Planet First economy in 2016. We also participated in a little civil disobedience.
In January PLANistas eligible for DAPA, a deferred deportation program for the undocumented parents of US Citizens, met with Senator Reid to discuss upcoming court cases and share their stories. We’re hopeful the Supreme Court will hear the DAPA case this year and rule in our favor to keep families together.
